Frogzilla


A wet day to end October................


We did find a Grey Heron at Onuma with an absolutely huge frog it had just caught.




It tried to swallow it many times...............

I had no idea the local frogs grew to this size.................




It was very dark, these pics are a bit mushy.



It went down the hatch eventually.

  1. That frog is an incredible size. I have never seen one anywhere close to that. Quite a meal for the heron!

  2. They always seem to "get it down the hatch" somehow...but as you say, digestion may take a while !

    1. I waited a bit to see if it vomited the frog back up. It didn't.

  3. Great behavioral sequence. First thing I found in japan was that the frogs were big and the bats were tiny. Where I come from the bats are huge and the frogs are tiny.

  5. Hello Stuart!:) Wow! I like your title,:) and it is a huge frog. Incredible captures of the Heron doing what comes naturally, even if it takes a while to get the frog down his throat. Looking at some of these images, I would have thought it an impossible feet. All the best.:)
